We’re all a little competitive when it comes to the awesomeness of our weddings. Of course, 98% of the event is all about the love between you and your future spouse. But then there’s that other 2%. The part of you that wants your wedding to be a source of inspiration to friends and family for years to come. And that’s exactly what venues like Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel are all about. Keep reading and get the inside scoop on what makes this venue a certified inspiration station.

1. The photos tell the story

First, Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel is in the heart of Tahoe South, so you’re surrounded by breathtaking beauty from sun up to sun down on your wedding day. Whether you’re having a sun-soaked summer wedding, a glittering winter wedding, an autumnal ceremony, or a green spring event, plan to be awed by the beauty of your natural backdrop—clear blue waters, majestic mountain peaks, and towering pines.

Alternatively, should you decide to exchange vows inside, the resort’s indoor spaces provide an equally wow!-worthy setting for wedding photos. For example, the spectacular indoor atrium features a romantic and cozy two-sided fireplace that will provide you with enviable Insta-posts for years to come.

2. Food and drinks matter more than you think

Second, while you may be way too busy or nervous to eat or drink much on your big day, your guests are another story altogether. Food and drink play a major role in how they experience (and remember) your event. The seasoned event staff at Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel works with you and your budget to prepare the perfect menu—sit-down gourmet to rustic and fun buffet. (Be sure to ask about the chocolate fondue station, which is always a favorite among guests.)

And be sure to request the most necessary element for you and yours—a signature couple’s cocktail.

3. There’s more to a wedding weekend than just the wedding

Third, to make your wedding memories stand the test of time, you need to turn your big day into a total Tahoe South experience. The resort’s location couldn’t be more convenient for taking advantage of Tahoe’s beaches, its nightlife, gaming, golfing, and shopping. And, of course, access to endless outdoor adventures, like hiking, skiing, biking, and an array of water sports. You can even go big with unforgettable experiences like parasailing, hot-air balloon rides, horseback riding, sleigh rides, and the aptly named Heavenly Gondola, a 2.4-mile ride up the mountainside.

4. Every wedding at Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel is absolutely unforgettable
